how many miles does the earth travles a minute or second ????

Do you mean rotate or move around the sun?

If you mean rotate, this is a hard question to answer. It depends on where you are on the earth.

If you mean going around the sun, it goes about 65,000 - 67,000 miles per hour. That depends on how close you are to the sun.
